Byrne Merricks Pinot Noir 2016

''This is Alex Byrne?s first non Ballarat Pinot Noir and he nails it. There?s a great balance between more serious meaty, bunchy, deep red fruit and the raspberry fruit. 18.5/20, 94/100.'' Andrew Graham. Oz Wine Review

''This is Alex Byrne?s first non Ballarat Pinot Noir and he nails it. There?s a great balance between more serious meaty, bunchy, deep red fruit and the raspberry fruit. 18.5/20, 94/100.'' Andrew Graham. Oz Wine Review

''This is Alex Byrne’s first non Ballarat Pinot Noir and he nails it, even give the challenges of the vintage (where lots of ’16 Mornington Pinots look forward and flat). Wild fermented with 15% whole bunches, matured in 10% new oak for 11 months. Light red with an orange tinge, this captures that sappy ripe Mornington red fruit with the warm vintage adding a little bacon. There’s a great balance between more serious meaty, bunchy, deep red fruit and the raspberry fruit. Real power without looking warm. Long too. Nailed it. Best drinking: Good now, will be good for another five years easy. 18.5/20, 94/100. 13.5%, $38. Would I buy it? Yes.''  Andrew Graham. Oz Wine Review

Where this wine comes from - Mornington Peninsula

Another gem that’s part of Melbourne’s ‘Dress Circle’, the maritime climate of Mornington makes it Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Paradise. Sea breezes ensure the vineyards remain cool, ideal for producing styles with elegance and finesse. Red Hill, Merricks and Balnarring is where the main action is, enjoying the see breezes coming off Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. There’s also a vast array of alternative varieties that enjoy the peninsula’s maritime climate. Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris certainly has made its presence felt, producing both clean crisp, easy drinking Grigio styles, as well as richer, riper Gris styles. The whites are made for seafood, while Mornington Pinot Noir is a must with traditional duck dishes – either Chinese style or French.
